He made light work of Schwarz and extended his unbeaten record to now an impressive 25-0. This showed why he is the regarded as the worlds finest heavyweight at the moment.
Fury Ends Night Quickly
This was Fury’s first fight in Las Vegas and also a dream come true to appear in front of his fans at the MGM arena. His popularity has grown tremendously in the US, especially since his fight with Wilder and because of this his attire for the game was an American flag on his shorts. Fury appeared to be extremely comfortable during the fight and threw in some silk smooth moves to entertain the crowd. He jabbed at Schwarz effortlessly and in doing so made a statement to the rest of the boxing world. Fury’s movement was simply too much for the German who could barely touch Fury let alone trouble him.
In just the second round Fury had already won the fight by TKO after Schwarz called quits. Fury landed two strong left hands and was regularly landed jabs to the body and head of Schwarz. Fury was ruthless and embarrassed Schwarz who took a hurtful combination and uppercut which left him with a bloody face and nose. Fury knocked Schwarz down but he showed some fight and got back up. By then Fury knew that the fight was all but over, he backed Schwarz into a corner and kept landing blows to his head and body. There was just 10 seconds left of the second round when match referee Kenny Bayliss paid close attention to the condition of Schwarz. But it was in fact his trainer Renee Friese who threw in the towel and was justified in doing so.
What Next For Fury
The fight that everybody wants or wanted besides Fury vs Wilder was that of Fury vs Joshua. But Anthony Joshua’s recent shocking defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr means that Fury will have to rethink that fight and probably wait and see if Joshua can redeem himself. Fury doesn’t seem to be slowing down, after the fight he made it clear that he still wants to fight someone else this year which would be around 21 September or 5 October. He also announced that he plans to have the highly anticipated rematch with Wilder next year so it seems these fights are warmups for his toughest challenger to date.
The Gypsy King Looks The Business
The Gypsy King deserves all the credit that his been getting and the fans his been gaining. He returned to boxing with a bang and since that return it appears that he might just be the best heavyweight in the world. That title is hotly debated between Fury and Wilder since Joshua lost to Ruiz his fell out of the running. The rematch should be nothing short of spectacular and if Fury keeps this momentum going it seems that there will be no stopping him.
